エンジョイシンプルイングリッシュ 11/3
アイルトン・セナ/Ayrton Senna

Formula One or F1 is the most difficult type of car race in the world.

There are about 20 races each year.

With cars going up to about 370 kilometers per hour.

In the mid-1980s, F1 racing became very popular in Japan.

 

One of the reasons was because Honda’s engines started being used in the cars.

But the biggest reason may be because many people were fans of the Brazilian racing driver, Ayrton Senna.

 

Senna was born in Sao Paulo in 1960.

His family was rich and owned several companies.

He started racing at a young age and became a good driver.

 

At first, he wasn’t serious about becoming a professional racer.

He even quit once.

Because his father wanted him to run the family business.

However, many people wanted Senna to continue racing.

So he decided to become a professional racer.

Senna became a world champion three times.

Many people say he was one of the greatest drivers ever.

 

But on May 1, 1994, Senna crashed into a concrete wall during a race and died.

He was only 34 years old.

 

There are many stories about Senna that show he was a great driver.

For example, he could control his speed really well by stepping on the accelerator about 6 times in one second.

It is said that no other driver could do that.

 

Also, his racing in Monaco in 1992 is very famous.

Because he and another driver caught up with each other many times.

No one knew who was going to win until the very end.

Many people still watch that video today.

 

As a person, Senna was known to show his feelings easily.

He became angry quickly when he was racing and this sometimes got him in trouble.

Also, he wanted to win so much that was sometimes hard for him to become friends with other drivers.

His biggest rival was Alain Prost, a French driver.

They were enemies for a long time.

However, Senna was also a kind person.

For example, the first time he won a race in his own country Senna cried in his car.

 

Also, people say that he cried when he met Honda Souichiro, the owner of Honda Motor company.

Senna was very happy to meet the person who made his car’s engines.

 

When Honda died one year later, Senna drove with a black armband to show respect.

Senna’s feelings toward his main rival Prost changed, too.

After Prost retired they became good friends.

Just before Senna died, he said,

 

“My good friend Alain.

I am so sad that you were not here racing with me today.”

 

Over 20 years have passed since Senna’s death.

But people still remember that he was a great driver and he is missed by people in Japan and all over the world.
